A Shoebox Of Snow is a BBC Radio 4 afternoon play about an elderly couple who save hoards of trinkets, knick-knacks, doodads, thingamajigs and whatnots in shoeboxes in their home. When they’re threatened with eviction by the council they can only take a shoebox with them and a touching story unfolds about the meanings we attach to treasured objects and why we save them.

The play was written by Julie Mayhew, produced by Justine Potter for Red Productions / Savvy Productions, for BBC Radio 4. It was nominated for 'Best Audio Drama' at the BBC Audio Drama Awards.

Hannah was a writer/producer working with Savvy Productions and tasked with developing a multiplatform strategy for the play that would extend its life beyond single broadcast and generate conversation and participation.

A Shoebox Of Snow Blog was set up to collect stories from listeners about the things that they hoard.  The blog used the social sound platform Audioboo (now AudioBoom) as a tool so people could share their stories with one click.

The Independent On Sunday did a feature to the project; The Stage covered the interactive possibilities of the drama; and Broadcast also wrote about it.

Whilst working on the play's multiplatform strategy, the theme was used to inspire new mini-plays. Here's Hannah’s, a dark twist on an anniversary card: The Anniversary Card.
